Attention crazy, disaffected, disgruntled, gun-owning sociopaths:

Hi. How's it going? I know you've got a busy day oiling your gun and updating that collage pinned to your wall of "EVIL PEOPLE WHO ARE GOING TO PAY" and it's just about time to start your "I am the Angel of Death; the Time of Purification is at hand" chanting ritual, so I'll make this real brief. Could you do us all a huuuuge favor, and instead of shooting up that movie theater, shopping mall, classroom, daycare, or public transportation, could you be a dear and head on over to the nearest Westboro protest and wipe them all out? This could really be a win-win for you and society. I know you think that theater full of capitalist swine/classroom full of bullies/daycare of future whores/bus full of Reptoids SEEMS like a good target, and the voice in your head are telling you they have to die, but you know how this ends. Stupid society just fixates on the the "innocent" (but you know better!) people you killed, and they completely ignore the totally sane and very lucid reason you had for getting all shooty. Well, here's a chance to change all that. Wipe out these Westboro twats, and yes there'll be some hand-wringing and tears, but on the whole people really aren't going to care. You're unlikely to be gunned down by the cops, who will probably just languidly observe it and maybe give a half-hearted, "wait, no, stop, don't do it." You'll probably go to a mental institution instead of jail, and I hear the pudding there is absolutely delicious. You may find yourself hailed as a hero by many, and in the end isn't that what you really want?

So please give this some careful consideration before you climb up in that clock tower and start weeding out undergrads or whatever it is you're planning.

Thanks very much!

Can't someone who owns a septic disposal truck just do a drive-by and hose these bastards down? I think that'd be absolutely epic.

FTFA - Earlier this morning, the Denver Comic Con released a statement on their Facebook page urging patrons of the convention to assist in forming a human barrier in front of the service.

Moonraper: I don't even get what those maniacs are protesting. Have they gotten to the point where they protest just for the sake of protesting?

Pretty much.

At this point, they may sa well carry signs that have the words "STOP IGNORING US!!!" in really big letters.

I don't know specifically how it would go down, but I've always thought it would be cool if a bunch of people blended in at an event they're protesting and at some people went running and screaming directly at WBC, making it obvious (to WBC) that they were about to get their collective arses handed to them, to which they drop their sings and run in abject fear.

Of course, everyone involved would stop dead in their tracks right in front of WBC would be, in case they decide to stand their ground and not run, which in case everyone could switch to plan B, which would be to moon them.

A country with nutbars to spare who are heavily armed, and none of them have thought "hey, I'll get to be a famous killer and respected at the same time". Sort it out armed US lunatics.

iheartscotch: BronyMedic: Lost_in_Oregon: I can't wait to hear that the Westboro Baptist Church is planning on protesting the Republican Convention. Will they build the wall in front of them or behind them?

I think that, if they really believed their own message, they'd be doing that. It's interesting how every time the RNC occurs, the town it occurs in experiences a surge in personal and craigslist ads looking for NSA gay sex.

It's almost like they like the buttsekz, and deny it.

Phelps is a democrat. In fact, if i remember correctly; he threw big fundraisers for both Clinton and Gore.

/ he's to the democratic party what the tea party is to the republican party; the crazy, ultra-radical pants-on-head wearers.

// I agree that both parties (WBC and the tea party) are loons and do not represent the mainstream views of either the democrats or the republicans

Yeah, that's a retarded equivocation.

The democrats most certainly do NOT elect crazies like the Phelps's, or hold a majority with similar views which enables said election -- quite unlike the Republicans.

The Tea Party has become MAINSTREAM republicanism. Party of Lincoln is as dead as Good Friday.

Coelacanth: fake James Holmes Facebook pages meant to scare people

How does a Facebook page scare people? Does it look like a late-'90s Geocities page with lots of animated gifs and blinky text? I find those a bit unnerving.

My high school friend and her half-sister were murdered about two weeks ago back home in Kansas City. Those assholes decided that the beating and smothering of two young mothers by a meth head was a good reason to protest.

I went to the memorial service. I never did see them, but there was a line of people about half a mile long in the small town where the service was being held. I don't even remember seeing the WBC animals, but I did see a few hundred people turning out to shout them down, with signs like "WBC LOVES ANAL", which gave me a good chuckle.

Same thing happened here in Columbia yesterday. A soldier my age was killed in Afghanistan and had his service. Hundreds showed up to make sure that the WBC wasn't seen or heard by the family. It shows you the darkest and lightest sides of humanity. I could tell from an on-site interview of the WBC yesterday in Columbia that they're running out of steam. They were asking the DJ why they were blocking their protest and sounded weak-willed. We're close to winning the battle over these trolls.

That being said, if I die, I expect you all to beat those people with their own picket signs if they show up at my funeral.

The best strategy is what happened in Columbia and College Station recently: get a ton of people to create a human wall around the event with their backs to the nutjobs.

Well a human wall happened in Columbia, College Station was more of a sub-human wall.

Saying "Thank God for the Shooter" might seem ironically prescient if some unknown gunman were to snap and unload on the Phelps clan.

He/She might even say "You're welcome!".

Are there any legal precedents for some form of a mob action that was labeled as temporary insanity? I'm wondering if at some point due to the large group trauma and shared pain that something like this wont make the crowd just go nuts and tear these people apart. At an individual funeral it might not be so bad but I would imagine the residents, family, friends and others of Aurora might not control their rage as well as one family and friends might. Imagine someone on the stand "I'm not sure what happened. Everyone ran towards the Westoboro people. I was scared, I couldn't focus, I had some image of what happened in that theater happening again and I wanted to stop it. I couldn't think and I blacked out. I remember coming back to myself as me and the girl that works over at the HotDog on a Stick where tearing a Westboro person in half by the arms" *sobs*
